FREIGHT forwarder Morrison Freight, based at Great Blakenham, near Ipswich, has launched a new agricultural machinery transport division.
It will offer a specialist “one-stop” service, available on a daily basis, for any business or individual looking to move agricultural machinery between the UK and mainland Europe.
The launch is a direct response to a growing demand from businesses to move agricultural machinery over the last two years.
Detlef Liebscher, managing director of Morrison Freight, said: “We are committed to providing our customers with the specialist services they require. This means developing our business in line with customer need.
“Our expertise in agricultural machinery movement has now reached a level that justifies the creation of an entirely new and dedicated department. Obviously, we would also hope that by introducing a comprehensive machinery transport service, we will open doors to new clients.”
Morrison Freight transports more than 1,000 trailers each month to and from mainland Europe. The company serves 24 countries, 365 days a year, with a presence in six key locations, in Germany, Italy, the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary and Romania.
